Who Should Attend

AMS training courses are designed for nuclear industry professionals, including utilities, vendors, educators, and regulators involved with nuclear power plants, research reactors, fuel fabrication facilities, national and international laboratories, and educators in universities to learn the practical aspects of nuclear power plant instrumentation.

Training Course Format

AMS training courses are presented in a classroom setting in the mornings with hands-on laboratory experiments in the afternoons. During the 5-day master course, one afternoon is free for the participants to spend at their discretion and another afternoon is devoted to one-on-one discussions between the participants and AMS course instructors, engineers, and managers.

The Instructors

AMS training courses are taught by senior-level AMS engineers led by company president and CEO Dr. H.M. Hashemian. The instructors have more than 75 years of combined experience testing I&C systems in essentially all the U.S. nuclear power plants and many in Europe and Asia.

Training Location

AMS training courses are usually held at AMS’ modern training facility at the company’s main headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee (USA). Various courses can also be conducted at specific locations in Europe and Asia to best fit the needs of the client or attendees. AMS will also bring the course to any company or organization that enrolls a minimum of five people.

Course Material

All course material is derived from the latest technical information available. AMS continually tracks, analyzes, and assembles the most recent, cutting-edge advances in the field. Each attendee is provided with a package of teaching material to supplement the course, including the course presentation slides and related resources such as technical papers, books, and industry reports.

Certification of Attendance

After successful completion of the course, each attendee will receive a formal Certificate of Attendance signed by the course instructors and AMS management.
